The Tabernacle of the Congregation at Shiloh - Joshua 18

Joshua 18:1 And the whole congregation of the children of  Israel assembled together at Shiloh, and set up the  tabernacle of the congregation there. And the land was  subdued before them. 

Joshua 18:2 And there remained among  the children of Israel seven tribes, which had not yet  received their inheritance. 

Joshua 18:3 And Joshua said unto the  children of Israel, How long are ye slack to go to possess  the land, which the LORD God of your fathers hath given  you? 

Joshua 18:4 Give out from among you three men for each  tribe: and I will send them, and they shall rise, and go  through the land, and describe it according to the  inheritance of them; and they shall come again to me.  

Joshua 18:5 And they shall divide it into seven parts: Judah shall  abide in their coast on the south, and the house of Joseph  shall abide in their coasts on the north. 

Joshua 18:6 Ye shall  therefore describe the land into seven parts, and bring the  description hither to me, that I may cast lots for you here  before the LORD our God. 

Joshua 18:7 But the Levites have no  part among you; for the priesthood of the LORD is their  inheritance: and Gad, and Reuben, and half the tribe of  Manasseh, have received their inheritance beyond Jordan on  the east, which Moses the servant of the LORD gave them.  

Joshua 18:8 And the men arose, and went away: and Joshua  charged them that went to describe the land, saying, Go and  walk through the land, and describe it, and come again to  me, that I may here cast lots for you before the LORD in  Shiloh. 

Joshua 18:9 And the men went and passed through the  land, and described it by cities into seven parts in a book,  and came again to Joshua to the host at Shiloh.  

Joshua 18:10 And Joshua cast lots for them in Shiloh before the LORD: and there 
Joshua divided the land unto the  children of Israel according to their divisions. 


Joshua 18:11 And the lot of the tribe of the children of  Benjamin came up according to their families: and the coast  of their lot came forth between the children of Judah and the  children of Joseph. 

Joshua 18:12 And their border on the north  side was from Jordan; and the border went up to the side of  Jericho on the north side, and went up through the  mountains westward; and the goings out thereof were at the  wilderness of Beth-aven. 

Joshua 18:13 And the border went over  from thence toward Luz, to the side of Luz, which is Bethel,  southward; and the border descended to Ataroth-adar, near  the hill that lieth on the south side of the nether Bethhoron.  

Joshua 18:14 And the border was drawn thence, and  compassed the corner of the sea southward, from the hill  that lieth before Beth- horon southward; and the goings  out thereof were at Kirjath-baal, which is Kirjath- jearim,  a city of the children of Judah: this was the west quarter.  

Joshua 18:15 And the south quarter was from the end of  Kirjath-jearim, and the border went out on the west, and  went out to the well of waters of Nephtoah: 

Joshua 18:16 And  the border came down to the end of the mountain that lieth  before the valley of the son of Hinnom, and which is in  the valley of the giants on the north, and descended to the  valley of Hinnom, to the side of Jebusi on the south, and  descended to En-rogel, 

Joshua 18:17 And was drawn from the  north, and went forth to En-shemesh, and went forth toward  Geliloth, which is over against the going up of Adummim,  and descended to the stone of Bohan the son of Reuben,  

Joshua 18:18 And passed along toward the side over against  Arabah northward, and went down unto Arabah: 

Joshua 18:19  And the border passed along to the side of Beth-hoglah  northward: and the outgoings of the border were at the north  bay of the salt sea at the south end of Jordan: this was the  south coast. 

Joshua 18:20 And Jordan was the border of it on the  east side. This was the inheritance of the children of  Benjamin, by the coasts thereof round about, according to  their families. 

Joshua 18:21 Now the cities of the tribe of the  children of Benjamin according to their families were  Jericho, and Beth-hoglah, and the valley of Keziz, 

Joshua 18:22  And Beth-arabah, and Zemaraim, and Bethel, Joshua 18:23 And  Avim, and Parah, and Ophrah, 

Joshua 18:24 And Chepharhaammonai,  and Ophni, and Gaba; twelve cities with their  villages: 

Joshua 18:25 Gibeon, and Ramah, and Beeroth, 

Joshua 18:26  And Mizpeh, and Chephirah, and Mozah, 

Joshua 18:27 And  Rekem, and Irpeel, and Taralah, 

Joshua 18:28 And Zelah, Eleph,  and Jebusi, which is Jerusalem, Gibeath, and Kirjath;  fourteen cities with their villages. This is the inheritance  of the children of Benjamin according to their families. KJV
